More than two dozen sign up to vote on Election Day in Kitsap

There are last-minute voters, and then there are last-minute voters.

Kitsap County has 28 in the second category.

Under Washington state’s new elections law, residents can register to vote — and then vote — right up until polls close at 8 p.m. Election Day.

For the 2019 General Election, Kitsap election workers were still signing people up to vote on the day of Tuesday’s vote.

Steve Gardner of the Kitsap County Auditor’s Office said there were 28 new registrations on Nov. 5.

The county’s elections staff still has work to do on this year’s General Election.

Additional ballots continue to arrive in Port Orchard for processing, and the second tally of votes is expected to be announced around 5 p.m. Wednesday.
